Give your 13-x-9-inch baking pan a quick coat of cooking spray or butter, then spread out a single layer of Oreo cookies. In an even layer, pour the can of sweetened condensed milk over the cookies. Using a spatula, smooth the Cool Whip on top.

Evenly sprinkle your chocolate cake mix over that. If there are lumps, you can rake them out with a fork. Finally, slice the butter and place it on top, covering as much surface area as possible to avoid dry spots.

Step 3: Bake your dump cake

Make sure not to mix any of the ingredients. Bake for 45 minutes.

That’s it; you’re done! The Oreo cookies on the bottom become a chocolatey crust, the condensed milk takes on the color and consistency of caramel, and the Cool Whip and butter infuse the cake mix with moisture, creating a dessert that has layers of textures and flavors.

If you’d like, you can top it with fresh whipped cream. This helps cut the sweetness if you prefer desserts that aren’t overly sweet.

Tips for Making Oreo Dump Cake

How do I make this Oreo dump cake my own?
You can easily make small tweaks to this recipe like changing the variety of Oreo. If you’re using regular or Double Stuf cookies, we suggest one layer, but go for two layers if you opt for Oreo Thins. You can also completely change the flavor profile by pairing other favorite cookies or cakes. Some ideas: lemon cookies and yellow cake, ginger snaps and vanilla cake, shortbread cookies and lemon cake.

How can I add less sugar?
If you want to lower the sugar levels of this sinful treat, you can try a cookie like Rip Van LEOS or a sugar free Oreo. Evaporated milk can be substituted for condensed milk, though you won’t get as much of that caramelized texture. You can also use sugar free Cool Whip and cake mix.

You’ll love these sugar-free desserts that taste like a treat.

Does Oreo dump cake need to be refrigerated?
This sticky cake is best eaten fresh, so we suggest not keeping it around for too long. If you’re going to consume it within 1-3 days, you can keep it covered at room temperature. Longer than that, you’ll want to refrigerate it. It will harden at colder temperatures though, so we suggest reheating for maximum enjoyment.

Can an Oreo dump cake be frozen?
If you’d like to keep some slices to enjoy at a later date, you can freeze your Oreo dump cake. Once frozen, it’s very hard to cut, so we suggest portioning it out beforehand and freezing it as individual slices.
